Sorry.  The trim tag pic on my monitor looked like "50 B", Now that I looked more closely I see the "50 50", but the last 0 is tough to see! :)

KevinW, no harm here. I didn't decode it just read what you said. I don't like vinyl tops on Camaros, even though I owned one. I think a white car with green interior will look great. Guess I was supposed to ask permission to have an opinion.

With that date and 2 fuel lines, it is an SS.

You don't need to ask permission, you don't get an opinion.
 ;D
We'll let you know if we deem it ok for you to have an opinion in the future.

In all honesty there probably isn't as many white cars with a colored (non-black) interior, but I wish there was. It makes it look more sporty.

I am tempted to put a red interior in my white car. (love that combo) BUT, I have a few nice original black pieces though, so it will likely stay black.

That white with green interior kinda reminds me of "double spearmint  gum" or something minty. :)

The car doesn't have a vinyl top, no chrome trim or pins where it might have been in the back. I'm taking it back to the stock Dover White with the SS hood, Chrome "gills", rain gutter stainless, wheel opening stainless, Black rockers and side striping it had. No rear spoiler. Some one asked how many fuel lines it has? It has two. It had a blacked out tailpanel when I bought it in 87 along with a very tired (flat cam) 396/TH400. Poked in a cam and lifters and drove it until 5&7 put a hole in the block on their way out....it had the front springs replaced sometime prior to me because it sat level when I got it and when I put a 350 in it as a driver, it sat up in the nose. Everything I've found has said this car rolled out of the factory as a SS350/TH350 car with a nice interior package. The kid I bought it from wasn't very mechanically savvy and had only owned it a couple months before I bought it. Cam had gone flat on him, I got it for $600. That tells me owner #1 or #2 did the BBC swap for Lord knows what reason as its an A/C car and that would have been a pain. Someone asked about the rear end tag, I'll roll under it and see if it's there...I've never looked for it.

I think they may've meant rear end stamp.
it is located on the passenger side axle tube facing forward. 2 letters followed by 4 numbers usually. Ex: BU 0516

The only small block engine RPOs in '69 to have two fuel lines were LM1 and L48 (SS), and this car's build date is too late for it to have been an LM1.
